A Weekend Walk

A Weekend Walk


Make some new friends along the way.

East Auckland has amazing walks throughout the region - from easy strolls to challenging bush hikes.

The Pakuranga Rotary Walkway extends from Panmure Bridge for approx. 10 kms to Half Moon Bay Marina - an easy and very scenic walking along the Tamaki Estuary on paths and some boardwalks – popular with families.   

For something more rugged the Mangemangeroa Reserve provides spectacular views with mangroves, indigenous forest, steep stairs and boardwalks.  Situated between suburbia and country you can be forgiven for thinking you are far from civilization. 

The Pine Harbour/Beachlands trail map illustrates a fantastic walk from The Pine Harbour Marina through Beachlands to Te Puru Park, Omana Regional Park, and beautiful Maraetai.  Swimming is glorius en route. Pohutukawa trees proudly display their red flowers which give this coastline its name – the Pohutukawa Coast. 

Further around the coastline is Duder Regional Park for easy to challenging walks and stunning views.  Waitawa Regional Park and Tapapakanga Regional Park are equally stunning to explore with a number of trails.  Inland is Hunua Ranges Regional Park with its waterfall, trails and paths.

The choice is not easy, and there is plenty of walking to be enjoyed, and best to wear suitable footwear and take a snack and water.
